Despite her young age the charismatic Turkish singer already posseses the ability to convey from the very first note atmospheres and characters without neglecting musical standards.

She received further coaching by Christoph Pregardien and Julius Drake at the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme and joined master classes with Brigitte Fassbaender, Romualdo Savastano, Charles Spencer and Roberta Alexander as well as acting classes at the Summer Art Festival of the University of Minnesota.

Feride Büyükdentas is winner of the First prize of the Young Opera Singers Competition in Istanbul, the Voice Competition Izmir and the Nordfriesische Liedpreis of Schleswig Hollstein.

She perfomed the parts of Cherubino and the Sorceress in „Dido and Aeneas“ at the Istanbul Opera House as well as Hänsel in „Hänsel and Gretel“ at the University of Music and Performing Arts and covered  for the role of Stephano in Gounod’s „Romeo et Juliette“ at Opera House Graz.

In concert she recently performed the world premiere of Robert Bauer's „Night music for Ashraf Fayadh“ under the direction of Ingo Ingensand at the Stephaniensaal Graz and Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater at the Reiterkaserne Graz.
